RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Sanchez amassed 227 plate appearances in his rookie season as the Giants' backup catcher with a .280/.295/.390 slash line and three home runs. A good receiver behind the plate with an above average arm, Sanchez will remain the primary backup in 2013. The ability to switch hit gives the Giants some flexibility, but his overall offensive numbers were not analytically impressive. A 2.2 percent walk rate is abominable, and it is not likely he will hit above .270 again. His .349 BABIP is likely to regress, and his 15.2 percent swinging-strike rate and 43.5 percent chase rate indicate that his 22.9 percent strikeout rate will increase.

2012

Sanchez hit 12 homers with 84 RBI over 365 at-bats in the minors last season as a 21-year-old, so he's somewhat intriguing in keeper fantasy leagues as a catcher. A switch-hitter, Sanchez even got a cup of coffee in the bigs in September and held his own. While he could win the backup role in 2012, he's likely a couple of years away from making a major impact in the majors, and Buster Posey is blocking his path in San Francisco.
